Archery season

7 posts in this topic

Is anyone looking forward to the archery opener?? I will be hunting the North Dakota opener this weekend.Looks like the temps will be good.I hope the rain and high winds stay away.

This gets to be a tough time of the year with the great fall fishing,deer hunting, upland birds and waterfowl to be had.Before you know it,it will be hard water fishing season.

too early to even think about hunting lee. No fun swatting misquitos all the time... Give me a good hard freeze or at least something like that to get me to thinking fall before I really get to thinking about hunting. I still can't believe summer is almost over!

North Dakota is dry and the bugs will be few.If bad I just put my bug tamer on and then no problem.Cool weather this weekend and few bugs will make a great weekend.I will be thinking about you Jeff while I am hunting.I have not sent you that elk call yet but it is packaged up and all I need to do is ship it and it will be soon.

Where abouts you go in ND Lee? The better half is from around Valley City area. Some big deer up that way, her bro-in-law got a dandy 175" deer last year and won the big buck contest with it for a free mount. He and I go out driving around with the binos and spotting scopes quite often when we are up there visiting...

Lawdog,

I visit Valley City every year for work. Each time, I make special point to stop into that little gun shop and BS with the owner. He is a nice guy and I can tell he has years and years of experience.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
